Paid €60 for family day pass into house and pirate adventure park, yet many attractions required additional payment ... big wheel, carnival games, bumper cars, carousel. House itself a little disappointing considering entry fee. Not great value for money.

Very disappointed, the Westport house was closed and no information on the webside. We waste time for journey.

Very enjoyable day out with kids. Plenty for them to do and while not all things included in ticket cost there certainly was enough to keep everyone happy. Would def recommend.
